About Trip:

Langtang Gosaikunda Trek is a mesmerizing trek in the Langtang region to the north of Kathmandu valley, which combines two different magnificent settings - Langtang Valley and Gosaikunda Lake. Located in the Langtang National Park, this trek presents an exquisite opportunity to enjoy the ethnic hospitality, eye-catching Himalayan panoramas and the glacial Lakes along with the diversity of flora and fauna.

Langtang Gosaikunda Trek begins from Syabrubesi. Following the Langtang River, you head to Lama Hotel and gradually to the Langtang valley through the beautiful rhododendron forest. Langtang valley has been described as the most beautiful valley by the famous British climber and explorer, Bill Tillman. Although it was harmed to some extent during the earthquake in 2015, tourism has been revived again with the same striking mountain views and ethnic hospitality of the Langtang region. On the way you can see various floras and faunas as this region is immensely rich in bio-diversity.

Langtang Gosainkunda Trek also offers some of the culturally important sites as Kyanjin Gompa, chhortens and the Buddhist prayer flags. Retracing to Lama Hotel, trek to Gosaikunda begins via Thulo Syabru and Lauribinayak. The magnificent vantage point of Lauribinayak provides splendid sunrise and sunset views of Langtang and Ganesh Himal. The sacred Gosaikunda Lake is a pilgrimage destination for both Hindu and Buddhist devotees. The lake is located at 4380 meters, so acclimatization is required for the Langtang Gosaikunda trekking. Retracing all the way to Dhunche, the trek ends and drive further to Kathmandu.

4. Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness, also known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), is a pathological effect of high altitude on humans, caused by acute exposure to low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitude. It commonly occurs above 3000 meters. It presents as a collection of nonspecific symptoms, acquired at high altitude or in low air pressure, resembling a case of "flu, carbon monoxide poisoning, or a hangover". However, most people can ascend to 3000 meters without difficulty.

Primary Symptoms of Altitude Sickness:

  • Lack of appetite, nausea, or vomiting
  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Swelling of hands, feet, and face
  • Insomnia
  • Shortness of breath upon exertion
  • Nosebleed
  • Persistent rapid pulse
  • Drowsiness
  • General malaise

Prevention:

Ascending slowly is the best way to avoid altitude sickness. Avoiding strenuous activity such as skiing, hiking, etc. in the first 24 hours at high altitude reduces the symptoms of AMS. Alcohol and sleeping pills are respiratory depressants, and thus slow down the acclimatization process and should be avoided. Alcohol also tends to cause dehydration and exacerbates AMS. Thus, Marvel Adventure strictly suggests avoiding alcohol consumption in the first 24–48 hours at a higher altitude.

Guides and porters from Marvel Adventure are very much familiar with this problem due to their experience. All of them are trained with basic medical trainings and hence they definitely can help you.
